  • What in the temporal structure of speech triggers speech-specific processing

    The precise role of cortical oscillations in speech processing is under investigation. According to current research, the phase alignment of Δ/θ-band (2-8 Hz) neural oscillations in the auditory cortex is involved in the segmentation of speech. ...

  • Auditory multi-scale Processing

    Natural sounds, music, and vocal sounds have a rich temporal structure over multiple timescales, and behaviorally relevant acoustic information is usually carried on more than one timescale. For example, speech conveys linguistic information at ...

  • Neurophysiological tracking of music

    Music, like speech, can be considered as a continuous stream of sounds organized in hierarchical structures. Human listeners parse continuous speech into linguistic units of phrases and sentences. Inspired by EEG and MEG studies on speech parsing, ...
